The largest Apple iPhone manufacturing facility in India is being built in Bengaluru, close to Hosur, and it will employ about 60,000 people, according to Telecom and IT Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw on Tuesday. At the Janjatiya Gaurav Divas celebration, Vaishnaw claimed that 6,000 tribal women living close to Ranchi and Hazaribagh had received training to produce iPhones.

"The largest plant in India is being built at Hosur, which is close to Bengaluru, to produce Apple's iPhone, which is now manufactured there. There are 60,000 workers employed at one factory. Of these 60,000 workers, the first 6,000 are our tribal sisters from areas close to Ranchi and Hazaribagh. The making of Apple iPhones has been taught to tribal sisters "declared the minister.

The Cupertino company has contracted Tata Electronics, which has a plant in Hosur, to manufacture iPhone enclosures. Electronics behemoths Foxconn, Wistron, and Pegatron produce the company's iPhone models in India.

According to two government sources with knowledge of the situation, Reuters reported last week that Foxconn, an Apple supplier, planned to triple the workforce at its iPhone manufacturing in India over the course of two years. With disturbances in China, Foxconn's choice suggests a change in production.

Tight virus limitations at Foxconn's Zhengzhou facility, the largest iPhone manufacturing in the world, have made headlines lately, disrupting production and raising questions about how China's viral policy could affect global supply chains.

According to the sources, who asked to remain anonymous because the talks are confidential, Taiwan-based Foxconn now intends to increase the workforce at its plant in southern India to 70,000 by hiring 53,000 more workers over the next two years.

In 2019, Foxconn, formerly known as Hon Hai Precision Industry, launched a plant in India and has since increased output. This year saw the start of iPhone 14 production.
